Nier Automata Ver 1.1A does retell the story from the Nier Automata video game. However, there are extra scenes and details thrown in that will still make watching the anime worth it even to anyone who saw every ending of the 2017 video game.
For anyone who hasn’t played the game, the story is set in the year 5012, after aliens and machine lifeforms decimated the human population.
